The Depot Outlet has presented a check for $2,000 to the Decorah Quilts of Valor program.  The money will be used to make quilts for veterans in Winneshiek County.  Each quilt takes over 50 hours of volunteer time to make.  Volunteers are working now on new quilts to present on Memorial Day at the VFW Hall in Decorah.
